Gov. Jon Corzine has given notice of intention to nominate two candidates for vacant judgeships in Atlantic and Camden counties: casino lawyer Patricia Wild and education lawyer Thomas Sumners Jr.

And on Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved three Corzine Superior Court nominees for Middlesex County: Pedro Jimenez Jr., a deputy attorney general; John Jorgensen, a municipal court judge; and Andrea Carter Latimer, an assistant county prosecutor.

Wild, 51, a Democrat, is a veteran Atlantic City casino lawyer, serving as vice president of legal and regulatory affairs at RIH Acquisitions NJ LLC and Resorts International Hotel and Casino Inc. since 2005. She was general counsel and corporate secretary at Sands Casino in 2004 and 2005; a risk manager and consultant at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in 2003; vice president and corporate counsel at Caesars Entertainment Inc. from 2002 through 2003; and vice president of claims at Caesars from 1999 through 2002. In the 1990s, she held in-house counsel jobs at Bally’s Park Place and Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts.

In the 1980s, Wild was a deputy attorney general, first in the Division of Gaming Enforcement and then in the Division of Criminal Justice's Environmental Prosecutions Task Force. She graduated from Rutgers University in 1978 and from Rutgers University School of Law in Camden in 1981. She clerked for Superior Court Judge A. Donald Bigley in Camden in the 1981-82 term.
